Hello from Brainerd MN

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!

We are from Brainerd MN.  We have a family membership of KCBS now (3 girls aged 5yrs-5months), and have been for a couple years.  My Wife & I were intially introduced to the BBQ world when we became KCBS judges about ten years ago.  That planted the seed for the awesome hobby that it is.  We judged some events after that, traveled as far as AL checking out contests. But I didn't get my first pit (18.5 WSM) until a few years ago.  Once that was here the obsession took off.  Since then...

-another WSM 22.5"

-traeger Texas 075

-another Texas 075

-Traeger PTG

- 2 Weber Kettles

-Paul Kirk class




yep the gas grill is lonely and rusting now :)


We just did our first KCBS contest this weekend

My goals were not to miss a turn in, and not to come in last.


2nd place chicken wings friday night

11th out of 25 teams on Sat, with a walk for 7th on chicken


Hooked for sure now


Take care everyone!


Looking forward to what can be shared  and learned on this site!!!!!

I just started smoking last fall and had limited success until I found this forum. Now I know what you mean about addiction. 


I look forward to getting new ideas and learning from your posts!
